3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... O-Town Throwdown... Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Spicy, fruity nose of peach, white pepper and broth. Fruity, more-tart-than-sweet flavor with some notes of pale malt and unmalted grain. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and fruity. A shout goes out to boboski for popping this one open and sharing!

Lemon and peach are the main flavors I detect in this brew. Slightly tart finish. Slightly overcarbonated, although not so much that Iím not enjoying this some.
Thanks JK for sharing this at MilkmanDanís tasting.

I donít buy this as a lambic, not even close, but I do buy this as a witbier. Nicely fruity aroma, but again, that fruitiness is fairly vague. In fact, Iím not sure that the fruitiness from the yeast isnít stronger than the actual fruit. Good, strong wheat in the flavor backed up by only the faintest acidity as with a typical witbier. Good level of carbonation. Overall the best of the three I tried.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 I really liked this. Not really a lambic but more of a fruit beer. Great packaging on this beer. Aroma is sugary and sweet; it smells like sour candy. Flavor is predominately peach, but lots of yeast and a little sourness in the aftertaste. Cloudy orange. Smooth, sweet, and very drinkable.

Pours a hazy goldish/orange. Nice soft peach on the nose with hints of bready yeast as well. Nice soft flavor profile with a hint of sour. The mouthfeel is very creamy and biscuity with a hint of canned peaches sweetness. A nice balanced beer that is not overdone with fruit like so many of these tyoes of beers are usually done.

Very hazy almost clear/silver/white/peach colour with a ring of foam. The aroma was very light, but I oddly got the aroma of a breath mint. The palate and flavour were very very subtle. Dry, a bit sour, throw in some peach, and thatís all I got.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 Poured from a 750. Hazy, golden color with a creamy tint; tinny, bare aroma of canned peaches. Flavor is dry, and lightly sour, with the sweetness of fruit cocktail and a little hint of spice on the back end. Spritzy; fails to impress or refresh. Dull. Thanks for sharing, John.
